MACC: FAREWELL TOUR in The Malay Mail

Malaysian comic quartet to tickle your funny bone on ‘farewell’ tour nationwide, as well as Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia 

BY MELANIE CHALIL

PETALING JAYA, August 6 — Popular funnymen Douglas Lim, Phoon Chi Ho, Kuah Jenhan and Dr Jason Leong will embark on an international tour beginning next month bringing a dose of Malaysian humour to Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia on top of a nationwide tour.

The quartet is also known as the Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians or the MACC, not to be confused with the government agency.

MACC Mania X: The Goodbye Tour will be the lads’ 10th and final tour as a quartet.
It will also be their first time touring internationally.

For the past decade, the four of them have been presenting their annual series of shows and fans will remember the likes of Planet of the Apeks, I Want to Touch a Douglas and Now That’s What I Call Jokes Vol. 8.

Dubbed the stand-up comedy event of the year, The Goodbye Tour will kick off on September 12 in Penang followed by Johor before moving to Singapore, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Hong Kong.

The comics will then tour four Australian cities, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, culminating in a grand finale at HGH Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur on November 15 and November 16.
The tour is produced by Two Funny Productions, established by Leong and Kuah as a platform for stand-up comedians in Asia.

MACC was formed in 2009 by Lim after deciding to become a comedy headliner. Lim then approached Phoon who performed regularly with Kuah at TimeOut KL’s Comedy Thursdays.

The then-trio presented their first show which sold out on the second week and their performances have sold out ever since.

Leong joined the group in 2011 after he was spotted at another TimeOut KL Comedy Thursday session.

“That’s when the MACC became legendary,” Leong said.

“This will be our final tour before we take a break and explore other solo projects,” said Lim.

“Writing a new show every year is both exciting and demanding. While we thoroughly enjoy it, perhaps it’s wise to stop for a while to reflect and reenergise.”

Lim added that the audience can expect a few personal stories in addition to their comedic commentary.

5 STAR REVIEW FROM THE MICF 2019

Thank you Melbourne International Comedy Festival for this review! 3rd time lucky! Really appreciate this and I hope to come back next year!


THIS IS AWKWARD
https://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2019/funny-tonne/john-souness/reviews/douglas-lim

Douglas Lim is a very funny comedian from Malaysia and his show This Is Awkward is hilarious.

Douglas denies being the King of Malaysian Comedy and tells very funny stories of Malaysia’s obsession with having kings.

After explaining the origins of his name, Douglas recalls his experience crossing the road in Melbourne and tells a hilarious story about his suspicions on Australia’s immigration ideas and Australia’s apparent “Right of Way” policy.

Douglas then teaches the audience a little of Malaysia’s language and sayings before comparing them to our Australian slang. He finishes with some more funny stories including Malaysian customs at Chinese New Year and his views on fortune tellers.

One of the funniest comedians at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival and a must see.

MELBOURNE: HERE I COME!


In 2018, Douglas Lim brought his show This is Nice to Melbourne, with candid observations and commentary that connected with Australians and Malaysians alike.

He spoke honestly about Malaysia’s struggle against an arrogant and corrupt government and the dreaded feeling that it was not going to change. It was a solid hour of lamentations wrapped in humour, criticisms camouflaged in comedy. Then he went home.

Malaysia had it's 14th General Elections... and changed the government for the first time since independence. So yeah... This is Awkward.

PM TEPI...

I would like to be offered some government projects now. Because as you can see, this is LITERALLY PM TEPI. Thank you Tun M for watching #olabolamusical and for greeting all the cast and crew. It meant a lot!

P.S. Please don't change government too soon because I will then have to behave like a celebrity and replace this photo with the new leader. Haih.
